Mr. Editor : Tbe examination of the Koyal
School took place cn the 13th. The school numbers
200 pupils, Eer. Mr. Mackintosh being principal,
assisted by Mrs. Chambr and Miss Kinney. After
prayer the examination opened by reading, Mrs.
Cbambre's class being on the platform. All read
very well; George Korton with the best pronuncia
tion. In the next class Narzaran and Louis Mahiai;
in Miss Kinney's class Kamaka, and in the 3d class
MiGun deserved praise for their proficiency. The
first class under the personal charge of Rev. Mr.
Mackintosh took the platform near noon and gave
excellent readings from W. Tell. In this class tbe
two smallest boys, Harry von Holt and Lincoln Hol
eteia were tbe most prcficientA The examination in
eeozrapby gve evidence that this study had been
made interesting to the pupijs. The questions pro
posed took in mathematical and physical geography,
and elicited ready answers. Map drawing on the
blackboard by James Honey deserved praise Some
fine maps drawn by the scholars were exhibited, of
Which one map of Europe, drawn by John Heano
el:cited much praise for its beautiful finish. Loghsh
anmniir. at all times a dry subject, bad been well
ind thoroughly studied. The reading in me pri
mary department. Miss Brickwood. principal, assist
ed by Misses Fornander and Maguire, deserved
warm praise- Those ladies have undoubtedly the
hardest task to conquer the difficulties which so
prominently interfere in natives to acquire a correct
pronunciation of English. All praise o them for
their success. By 12 o'clock the school bouse-in
and outsiJe became thronged by the audience, .
among whom we noticed many foreign ladies and
gentlemen, amongst whom were their Lxcel.encies
Miniaior ftpaident. and the Ministers ,
of the Interior and Finance. Hon. Mr. Bishop. Hon.;
Mr. Rhodes, and others. The programme of recita
tions was opened by singing " Shut the Door."
TVe regret that want cf space compels us tc omit the
insertion of the full programme. Recitations were
interspersed by songs, beautifully and artistically
executed and much applauded. The minstrel song
0 Ladies won't you Marry." in character by
Keoodia. elicited a jerfect furore of applause. Tho
recitatlcns, dialogues, etc., were all goo 1. and somo

wimceol the di jarture from its ehortfl of a
worthy ton c.J ti e soil, on a dijlomatic mission,
eminently jdjilanthrcpJc, as weil as moral and
politic ; any attemp t to recuperate the fading
Hawaiian race being well calculated to create a
lively sympathy for the Hawaiian born diploma
tist charged with the furtherance of this inter
esting csperioieEt. Although not of the race,
fce is racy of the s jil," and has already done
good service to bis native land. May his efforts
fur his country's weal be as successful on his
present, as on his former diplomatic mission;
and may hi" return to the place of bis nativity
and the home of his children, be as satisfactory
for himself, his King and country, as when not
long ago he brought back the Reciprocity Treaty
that grand basis of the present and future
prosperity of fertile and beauteous Hawaii nei.
Don voyage '
We FiE.iB that II. B. M's Commissioner and
Consul General, Major James Hay Wodebouse,
will proceed t) San Francisco by the next
steamer, and that he is likely to continue hia
journey a3 far as London. Hi presence in the
Uriticfi capital will he very opportune for His
Hawaiian Majesty's Diplomatic Envoy, ns it is
well known that the gallant Major is an advocate
of the scheme which forms His Excellency's
business to the Court of Sc. James.
In the present awkward 6tate of the labor
market we learn that the government has be
come convinced of the necessity of adopting
some special action, although heretofore inclined
to oppose the outlay of the public money on the
importation of tingle men, as plantation hands.
While the scheme for the introduction of families
of llii.'-t Indians into thetc islands is now being ac
tively advanced by the resolution of this gov
ernment to Kcnd a Diplomatic Envoy to London
for its furtherance, the actual want of planta
tion laborers has decided the government to mo
dify its previous pxdicy on this subject, and to
allow a certain amount of public money to be
conditionally expended in the introduction of a
limited number of plantation hands, without loss
of time. The Board of Immigration, of which
the Minister of the Interior is the President,
has been charged with this important tabk, and,
for the present, it soems likely that an attempt
will be tnr.de immediately to obtain laborers
from China, who will be accompanied by a cer
tain number of women. Working men, espe
cially thobe with wives and families, from any
part of the world, are eo highly desirable and
requisite in theee Islands, that tho government
is disposed to offer them inducements to como
here, either by grants of land or the reimburse
ment of the cost of their passage here. But, in
the present urgent need of laborers, it would be
useless to depend upon such an offer attracting
pieoplc to these shores, in any numbers, and it is
evident that, as we already have suggested, the
parties in this country most interested in the
labor question, are now called upon, with a view
to their own interests, to take joint action with
the Board of Immigration in the adoption of
some p'lan for the immediate supply of laborers,
It unfortunately happens that tbe best
schemes are often marred by the want of. unity
of action. In the pireeent case, the need of
laborers is so pressing, that it is highly desirable
for all parties interested to adopt some uniform
pilan of proceeding. As we are given to under
stand, what government purposes to do is, to
undertake to charter one or more vessels for the
purpose of bringing over from China a certain
number of laborers, along with their women, as
far as it may be possible. The co6t of making
a contract with these people in China, and eub
Ecquently transporting them to these ehorcB will
be disbursed in the first instance by this govern
ment. But, it is expected, as we arc informed,
that the p lanters and employers or labor here,
will bind themselves to reimburse government
for the co6t of the passage of that particular
number of Chinese coolies with their women,
that each individual planter or employer of labor
may decide upon engaging for his plantation or
otherwise. This, we may Btate on reliable
authority, is the course government proposes to
follow, in tho matter of Chinceo importation.
The best course for tho planters and employers of
labor to follow would be to come to an under
standing amongst themselves, each one pledging
himself to pay for the cost of passage of a ccr
tain number of Chinese coolies with their wives,
drawing up a list to that effect, and duly for
warding the same to government, which would
then be In a position to take action at once for
the importation of the number of Chinese re
quired. This is what we hear the government is
disposed to do in this matter, and it is as much
as can reasonably be expected. As we lately
remarked, the 6ugar planters, with their cnor
mous profits thanks to the Reciprocity Treaty
and their abundant capital thanks to their
lucky stars are well able, and we believe very
willing to pay for the cost of the importation of
labor, without which their lucrative business
must come to n standstill. It might be objected
that it is hardly fair to make them pay for the
cost of passaga cf the Chinese women, as well as
the men. Upon this matter, we really do not
wish to pronounce any opinion. They must set
tle that point with the government themselves.
We again refer to the subject of South Sea
Islanders at the Fijis, about wbch we have already
taken occasion to make some remarks. We are
happy to state that there is at least a possibility
of some of those time-expired South Sea
Islanders at the fijis being obtained for our labor
market. We hear, upou good authority that
this government will probably take steps with
tha British government of the Fijis through the
good offices of II. B. M's. Commissioner and
(Jonsul Ci'eneral here to secure, if possible, a
certain number of those Islanders for our labor
market, on the same terms, of course, as those
which wc have explained as likely to be adopted
in the case of the Chinese coolies.
In conclusion, we venture to express the opin
ion that this government deserves the thanks of
the country for the active and efficient measures
which it proposes to adopt in order to supply the
deficiency of population, particularly of the
female sex, and the urgent need of agricultural
laborers, the great drawbacks to the prosperity
and progress of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

j The gran 1 problem frj:n immemorial time,
in nil conditions of human society, ha been
the t.wxlu.t vivndi, or, in common r-pcech,
wbilit2 away the time of life. Moral
lei.-Iators and divine-, phiioophcrs, ep ieureuus,
sensual i-ts and atheists, in short, every class
of mankind that has undertaken to influence
the destinies of mortals, have all pronounced
widely different views upon this all important
question of the modus vivendi. With some,
enjoyment, varying from tbe highest intellectual
pleasures to the lowest and vilest Bcnsual gra
tifications, has seemed to be the natural way
of spending human existence. Others, again,
hTe deemed a life of austerities, privations,
and the denial of every mental and bodily solace,
the proper course to follow through this life,
as a means of securing happiness hereafter.
Bat, whether fur this life or that to come,
men. an a rule, have always, in one way or
another, inclined to the opinion that pleasure
is a condition of humanity, highly to be desired
and sought after. These general remarks are
intended as an introduction to a few practical
comments on the festivities ol the great national
holiday, Kamehameha Day", ju&t celebrated
by all patriotic Ilawaiians with becoming
enthusiasm. It is unnecessary to remark that
the celebration ol national holidays is a custom
of all civilized countries, which arises out of
the circumstances of their political, religious,
or social existence. In this Kingdom of United
Hawaii nei, the name of its great founder has
been very appropriately adopted in connection
with a national festival of annual recurrence.
Some difference of opinion may possibly
prevail here, as elsewhere, as to the best mode
of celebrating tbe national festival. In some
countries, pompous pageants of a religious
aspect, form a main Feature of the celebration
of the day of the nation. Operas, theatrical repre
sen ations, illuminations, and, in short multifari
ous modes, solemn or comic, arc adopted as a means
of duly celebrating tbe national holiday. In our
lovely. Islands, with their genial sunny climate,
perhaps no better plan could have been devised
than that followed at the recent celebration of
Kamehameha Day ; that is, to have attracted
the denizens of the Hawaiian Metropolis from
its sultry streets, with their inevitable grog
shops, en masse to the "breezy plain" to use
a royal term very apropos of Kapiolani Park,
there to enjoy the exciting sport, of witnessing
a trial of strength and speed combined between
noble speeds whose ancestral praises have been
sung even in Holy Writ by the patient Job.
" Hast thou given the horse strength ? Hast
thou clothed his neck with thunder?" asks
the Patriarch in enthusiasm, at the contempla
tion of the war-horse who paweth the
ground," who " mocketh at fear,' and
emelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of
the Captains and the shouting." Those who
exclaim against tbe amusement of racing, as
immoral and objectionable, are opposed by the
custom of all nations from the earliest history
of the world. Abuses, it is true, may creep
in, by the excessive practice of betting, which
seem to afford an argument against horse-racing.
But, where do not abuses unfortunately break
out? The Humane Societies' complaints of
cruelty to the race-horses, are too absurd to
need confutation. Men arc flogged by the
laws of civilized nations, England included,
more severely than any race-horse. Six dozen
of tho " cat" on the back of a human being,
is a matter for the meditat ion of the Humane
Societies, very different from the whipping and
spurring of race-hor6ee. It may further be
remarked that all enlightened governments have
encouraged horse-racing, as a means of improv
ing the equine breed. Thus, in Great Britain
at several of the great race-courses, the
" Queen's Plato" is one of the prizes. Who
but a fool, would think of accusing Her
gracious Majesty of cruelty and immorality,
in consequence. Here, the " King's Purse,"
ia very appropriately also bestowed. In
Italy the custom of running horses without
riders, as at the Corso of Rome, called bar
beri or barbs, is an imitation of those trials of
strength in which horses in their wild state
voluntarily indulge. Thus, on the boundless
South American pampas where immense herds
of horses roam in native liberty, the most excit
ing races take jilace between a lot of the young
colta of the herd, under the direction of an old
sire ; and to the observant spectator there can be
no doubt that he is looking on at a veritable
trial of speed, voluntarily undertaken by the
young males ol a herd under the eyes of their
own equine progenitors ; aod that their strength
is also tested as well as their speed is evident
from the length of the race, oftentimes more
than a league out from the herd to some huge
solitary tree, round it, and back to the herd
again, or six miles of a run. Such a race is
worth a hundred races among horses in a domes
tic state. Because, there, the thoughtful observ
er witnesses the natural emulation of tho noble
6tccd, sung by Jcb, to outdo his fellows and is
not human life itself a race in which all vie, like
the wild colts of the pampas, to leave the
ruck " behind? It is absurd to laise the voice
against a sport so noble, in vogue from the
most ancient times, and keenly enjoyed by the
mettlesome steeds themselves. What company
of equestrians, mounted upon spirited horses,
have not experienced the difficulty of reigning
in their prancing coursers, when they all com
mence to gallop, and each noble brute strives to
head his fellows ! In fact, to conclude we may
avor that running races comes as natural to the
horse, as warbling to the singing-bird, or bark
ing to the cur. The immortal Chateaubriand
Eaid : " touts noblesse rienl du chtval,'' all
nobility comes from the horse ! The chcvaJkr,
the Knight, originally meant a " horseman."
So, also, the Latin cues ; and even now, the
most courtly nation of Asia, the Farsa-s or Per
sians, the " horsemen," par excellence, derive
their name froai fars tbe horse.
